comment Is it a UUOC (useless use of cat) to redirect one file to another?
@Wildcard I'd have preferred "pump" over "shovel", but still a good word. +1

Wow, way to completely disappoint me when I clicked the title of this question on the Hot Network Questions list. So much for coming to see a cat!

comment Do I need swap space if I have more than enough amount of RAM?
-1 this answer makes no sense. Why the heck would having slower memory (swap) have better performance than the same amount of faster memory (RAM)?? at some point you have to acknowledge enough RAM means no swap is necessary..

@Davidmh: sure, but price is not part of the question here. The question is if you have enough money to buy whatever you want, do you still need swap if you have 16 GB of RAM? You're avoiding the question.

comment Do I need swap space if I have more than enough amount of RAM?
@Davidmh: My point is that if you have X GB of RAM and Y GB of swap, it is strictly worse than X + Y GB of RAM and 0 GB of swap. What is X + Y in your case?

@Davidmh: By that reasoning your swap file must be infinitely big, otherwise your programs will still crash when they exhaust the swap file.

comment Why does bash think: 016 + 1 = 15?
Note that you could've figured this out yourself just by doing echo $((016))

comment SSH Gateway in ~/.ssh/config
That's what common sense tells me too, but then it makes me wonder why I see so many sites suggesting the first one instead of the second one.
